Little Hand Lamb Burgers

Home / Little Hand Lamb Burgers - March 18, 2017 , by yvettelamb

Years ago, I found a recipe for spicy lamb burgers in the brilliant BLW cookbook. However they contain dairy, and also, I couldn’t be faffed dealing with cloves and cardamon pods. So I adapted and tweaked to make a simpler soya and dairy-free version. They’re perfect for baby and toddler hands and very delicious. This makes 12, and I freeze them, uncooked in portions of two. Defrost in the fridge before following frying instructions.

P.S. Recipes will only be VERY occasional on here – my usual posts will still totally be based on ponderings around my inept parenting 😉

Lamb Burgers


  • 500g lamb mince
  • Half an onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • small cup of frozen petit pois or sweetcorn
  • 1 egg
  • 2 table spoons of olive oil
  • 30g breadcrumbs (using soya free bread)
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp paprika


  • Mix the lamb, onion, garlic, breadcrumbs, cumin, turmeric and paprika and peas or sweetcorn in a large bowl – you may need to use your hands
  • Add the egg and half the oil and mix well
  • Make into 12 mini burgers and place on a baking tray or plate
  • Put in the fridge for at least 30 minutes, longer if you can
  • Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry for five minutes on each side. I usually split the burgers in half and then give them another minute, but maybe I am just paranoid about pink!
  • Serve with any potatoes you fancy and some green veg. NB – they probably won’t eat the green veg.
